PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

Bog Volleyball?

It just doesn't have the same ring to it as mud volleyball does. And, man, was that stuff deep. Flight Time & Big Easy could barely move in the stuff, let alone play volleyball in it. Still, the task wasn't too bad, and everyone did pretty well over. Because of it, Gary & Matt couldn't make up much time, and were eliminated.

Week 8 Results
1st place - Meghan/Cheyne (2x)
2nd place - Sam/Dan (1.5x)
3rd place - FlightTime/BigEasy (1x)
4th place - Brian/Ericka (.5x)
5th place - Gary/Matt (0x)

Funky.

Mixed results in scoring this week. The PAT Bonus Game turned out to be a big game overall, as Flight Time & Big Easy weren't very popular picks. So, the players who did wager on them in the PAT game really got the benefit.

Speaking of which, the Perfect Bet Award goes to dragonflies (5x) for making an All-In bonus wager that paid off! It was gutsy for sure, but that deserves some recognition.

The Greatest Gainer Award goes to both taffnic and Snidget, who both climbed 9 ranks this week. Nice!

Some big moves this week in the Top 10. ARNutz, with a flawless bet, was able to overtake jbenz and take a nice lead in the game, while taffnic, jumped over the whole group to move to #2. It should be very interesting to see what happens!

This week's Pitboss of the Week is mikey, whose bonus guess was only 1 minute off of the correct time. mikey has chosen the following:

Week 9 Payout Table
1st - 2x
2nd - 1.8x
3rd - .2x
4th - nuthin' (or 0x for purists)

Max Individual Bet - 180 points
Bonus Pick - Time spread between Meghan/Cheyne & Brian/Ericka

Just as a heads-up, regarding the Pitboss Mini-Game. The final week always features a 2x/1x/0x payout table with the "million" bonus game, so there won't be a guest pitboss for the final week. You can keep making your guesses this week, of course, but once we get down to the Final Three teams, no more guest pitboss. I like having the final week be consistent every season, so that players will know what they're building for and won't get surprised by some silly twist that makes their strategy pointless.

I'm looking at you, Survivor, and your Final2/Final3 shenanigans.

mikey has selected the following bonus game.

Bonus Game - Confessions of a Mid-Season TAR Team

This week's bonus game is simple. You can wager on which team you think will have the most confessionals in the next episode. You may only pick one team, though.

For the sake of simplicity, a "confessional" means that the team is talking about the race from a pitstop in an interview environment. If the team is just narrating what they're doing via voiceover (like "the mud volleyball was so tough!") it counts as a confessional, even they don't show the team. And an individual confessional goes on for however long they keep talking about a subject, even if the camera moves back and forth between scenes.

Just remember, if the team keeps talking, it's still the same confessional. Take a break, you guys.

Confessional Payout Table
Correct Answer - 4x
Incorrect Answer - 0x

Maximum Individual Bet - 60 points

If two teams finish with the most confessionals, then correct answers will get 2x each. If 3 teams tie, then 1.3x each. If all four tie, then the game is a wash and everyone gets their points back.

TAR15 Teams Remaining
Brian/Ericka
FlightTime/BigEasy
Meghan/Cheyne
Sam/Dan

Good luck everyone! Remember to make a Time Bonus pick too if you want to be Guest Pitboss!


I am destined to be in 3rd place, I guess. Ah well, I'll take it.
